? >> when i listen to senator boehner and mitch mcconnell yesterday, and when they sound somewhat willing to compromise, if you look behind what they're saying, they're not willing to compromise in any way that touches wealthy americans. because if you eliminate breaks, you're eliminating both the income tax rate and the capital gains rate and the dividend rate and the estate tax rate, then all you're dealing with are things like home mortgage deductions, eitc, child tax credit, preferences for your 401(k), all of the things that actually disproportionately affect middle-class americans and working americans, not the wealthy. so, they're really hiding behind this kind of rhetoric of let's deal with the preferences. but the preferences really don't touch the rich. >> so what is the solution that you would like to face? >> well, you know, i'm in line with the president that we need to deal with rates on the highest income americans. i'm not at all set on $250,000. i think that is a number that really is probably the wrong number. i had conversations with the white house. i don't know why th

completely unrelated? ashley judd, the actress rumored to be considering a bid for mitch mcconnell's senate seat in 2014. a fellow kentuckian. what do you think of that? >> i think it's an exciting prospect. i think what ashley would bring to the table would be, obviously celebrity. i think it would raise the profile of that race to -- it would become the most important race in the country in 2014. and what she can do, which a lot of other people can't do, is talk about a new vision for our commonwealth. and you know, mitch mcconnell will have been here 30 years. he hasn't really had a new idea in 20 of those 30 years. >> ouch. >> and kentucky needs a new -- i go way back with mitch. we go this way all the time. but, kentucky does need a new vision. we've relied too much on things like coal and agriculture and some other things that are great parts of our economy, but our commonwealth needs new vision and that can come from someone like ashley judd, who is passionate, who studied the issues, and is very, very smart. and she would get attention. >> i'm sure. >> i think it's exciting. >> defi

with speaker boehner in the house and mitch mcconnell, who back in 2010 october told me his number one priority was to make sure president obama is a one term president. well, the president's re-election isn't a fluke either. institutional powers have been resent to washington. they're both retime actors with real power and they must come together. why? after the internal conversation of a national election, we now have external events that are all too real and pose a very serious threat to the u.s. economy. the fiscal cliff is not theoretical. it is a real problem. it has to be dealt with and the only path is bipartisanship. >> you write administration officials tell you president obama is hungry to move to the center. do you think congress is willing to meet him there? >> i think republicans have gun to internalize the election. they thought the president could be defeated in a bad economic climate. that didn't happen. the house majority in the house smaller. the senate minority is smaller and they didn't whip the presidency. so there are real factors. and you can say that the country is stil
